Ride for Kids Charity Ride

This could be the most special moment of your Americade Week: Americade's Ride For Kids Ride is a special, scenic ride that helps very sick kids.

You'll be a VIP in this full police escort, hour-long festive ride that ends in a touching moment where you'll help award well over $15,000 to this incredible charity.

  • You can ride for free to show your support
  • Or, buy the package with includes breakfast, an amazing chicken and steak lunch, a t-shirt, prizes and a chance to win a Honda Motorcycle! And the package is only $50! (100% goes to charity)

It kicks off with breakfast* in quaint downtown Glens Falls. Then the ride departs with a parade-like atmosphere, with kids waving and spectators lined up along the parade route. You'll enjoy a relaxed, lakeside ride, ending with a lap of the village where we'll briefly close the streets especially for you and this ride. At the ride's end in Lake George, a great lunch is waiting for you featuring a chicken and steak lunch thanks to Outback Steakhouse!

And, Ben & Jerry's of LG will be giving out free ice cream at the lunch venue for all Ride for Kids participants.

The Grand Prize: Honda is VERY generously giving away the motorcycle to one of their registered participants in this ride. Your odds of winning a brand-spankin' new Honda are VERY good!

The Charity: Ride for Kids is the longest-running, most successful motorcycle charity event in the nation. Since 1984, motorcyclists have raised funds to help children with brain tumors, which are the top cause of cancer death in children. *You can simply ride in the Americade Ride For Kids ride for free, or you can purchase the RFK package (100% goes to the charity) which includes breakfast, lunch, a special Shirt and an event pin. It's only $50, and is sold directly by Ride For Kids.
